Spiced Carrot Bisque

Sweet fragrant spices subtly perfume this creamy golden bisque.

1 1/4 pounds (about 4 large) carrots

3 cups regular-strength chicken broth

1 large onion, sliced

1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper

3/4 teaspoon ground ginger

1 cup whipping cream or half-and-half (light cream)


Whole nutmeg to grate or ground nutmeg

1 cup (4 oz.) shredded Cheddar cheese

Peel carrots and slice about 1/4 inch thick; you should have about 1 quart. In a 4- to 5-quart pan, combine carrots, chicken broth, and onion. Cover, bring to boiling, then simmer until carrots are tender when pierced, 8 to 10 minutes.

Pour mixture into a blender, about half at a time if needed, and puree. Return soup to pan and add pepper, ginger, and cream. (If made ahead, cool, cover, and chill as long as 2 days.) Stir over low heat until hot. Add salt to taste. Pour into tureen or bowls. Sprinkle with nutmeg to garnish. Offer cheese to add to individual portions. Makes 4 to 6 servings.
